Ethereum Scaling Solutions

The easiest way to scale your Ethereum app

With over 1.3 billion transactions recorded, 130 million unique wallets and ~2.7 million monthly active users, Polygon Proof of Stake (POS) is the most proven scaling solution in web3, and the best way to launch a web3 project that's ready for a global audience.
Mechanism

Scale and Power

Polygon PoS is a layer 2 scaling solution that achieves unprecedented transaction speed and cost savings by utilizing side-chains for transaction processing. At the same time, POS ensures asset security using the robust Plasma bridging framework and a decentralized network of Proof-of-Stake (PoS) validators.
